Adsense Millionaires

Has anyone reached a million yet?

     
12:33 am on Feb 5, 2006 (gmt 0)



Many people were successful with Adsense program, earning $x,#*$!.xx figures month after month. Other publishers - those in UPS Club - earn even higher digits $xx,xxx.xx month after month.

First of all, I congratulate everyone for their success with Adsense program. I also congratulate myself for endless hours that I spent designing my website, experimenting with ad placements, enriching content and user experience, etc.

There are many successful publishers on this forum, many of them earning tens of thousands dollars every month. The question is - are there any millionaires?

If you mean make 1M in a year from AdSense.
so average. $83333.33/month
About $2777.77/day
Each click usually is from $0.03 to $2.00. Let's assume averge $0.6 per click(I think this is still high) You need to have have at least 4630 clicks/day
If CTR is 1.5%. You need at least 308667 views on your site each day.
I don't know much sites can have 0.3M traffic everyday other than search engine.

Try calculating hypothetical CTR of 8-10%

Sounds more reasonable?

I don't know whether or not it is more resonable.
but I will think that kind of CTR is kind of high.
I read some posts about adsense and some of them mention CTR over 5% will be flagged by Google. I don't know where they get this info, so I don't know it is truth or not.

All across my sites, I get around 8% click throughs on average. One of my sites gets around 20% and I haven't been banned. Of course I don't click on my own ads either so...

That's about my CTR, I just wish I had the visitors to make that CTR really make money, but that's a different story...

If You have one million on Your account and get 4% interest, that makes $40.000 a year.
So somebody with $3500 a month from AdSense and not working anymore on his site, has about the same income as somebody living from the interest from $1 million.

The only question is the stability over the years.

The question is why would someone with 1 mil settle for 4% interest? Take your adsense money and invest it where you can earn at least 15% and you will reach a million much sooner.

It's not exactly difficult to find.

If you can't find it then don't go into Internet research!

3 years ago I had 8,000 pageviews a day in adsense. Now i do that every 30 seconds during peak hours of the day.

There is no limit as to what you can earn on adsense.

That is absolutely not true. Let's not go into too much discussions about CTR because it is against Google rules.

Exactly. 4% is for ultra-conservative investors, such as my mom. With 1 million dollars - I would not settle for less than 10% annual return. No way Jose. :)

I think it is fully possible for a regular webmasters like the ones here to produce $1,000,000 a year income from Adsense alone.
I have managed to produce over $20,000 a month on Adsense, with only about 1200 impressions a day.
I have a solid 12% CTR and get between 50c and $4 per click.

I have been paid as high as around $50 per click on some websites, and have seen CTRs as high as 300%

So to make about $3000 a day, with a 10% CTR and getting paid $1 a click you only need 30,000 visitors a day. Which I am sure most people here are capable of acheiving.

Oh one other thing, I didnt say it was easy, or can be done without some seriously hard work.
Im just saying it is fully possible.

Are you sure about that number? I understood that the max payout was substantially less...

1,200 impression x 30 days
= 36,000 impressions per month

36,000 x 12% = 4,320 clicks

4,320 clicks x average of $2/click = $8,640/month

Hmmmm.....

Whatson, your average must be higher than $2 to achieve $20,000/month?

I have been paid as high as around $50 per click on some websites, and have seen CTRs as high as 300%

It never happened to me. Honestly, I think that $50 clicks do not exist. Why in the world would anyone pay $50 per click?

Why in the world would anyone pay $50 per click?

If I'm selling some intangible good for $110 with a 50% ROI, I'd pay. That's $10 profit.

If I'm selling something for $50000 with 0.001% ROI, I may pay without expecting any profit. In some cases it's wise to advertise while knowing that you won't earn any money but it is the quick exposure and credibility you gain. And beleive me AdSense budget might be the lowest of advertising budgets of those companies while they're paying huge amounts of ad dollars to show up on TV for several seconds at prime-times.

You will enver have 50% Return on Investment if you are selling something (a product, as in a shopping website).

In some cases it's wise to advertise while knowing that you won't earn any money but it is the quick exposure and credibility you gain.

You don't have to pay $50 per worthless click to gain credibility. Accidental users who manage to stumble upon your ad and click on it (out of interest or boredom) do not even know how much you paid for the ad.

True. That isn't for small timers. Anyway, that's out of context of original post.

How can someone get a 300% CTR
Isn't that impossible?

It's possible and it happens. Example, visitor goes to your page, this counts as 1 ad impression. Then he 'somehow' gets interested into all of your ads, and then he/she starts clicking and opening links in a new window.

You have all kinds of people on the internet, you can never predict who will end up on your website or click on your ad(s).

this type of thing is most common on AdLinks pages. its a page full of ads without any other exits. a user might click on several ads in one visit. i think it is the primary reason that AdLinks perform so well... the average visitor visits more pages than they might ono regular ads.

3:02 am on Feb 17, 2006 (gmt 0)

I've had 2,000+% if I remember correctly.

I have one site that has regular 200-600%. Why should anyone not get that if the links are valid on a relevant site?

Site visitors are shopping around, if they go to a supposedly relevant link and its garbage, back track, and if one has several very good advertisers, just why should they not "peruse" their offerings?

It's no different to the "High Street".

Google "know" this, they have the historical traffic information for many informational/sales/directory sites.

Getting G's credibility acceptance is another matter:-)

I'm signing up for Adsense with a site with 300 unique IPs per day, it's precisely 1/1000 of the traffic required in this estimation.

So my site is likely to earn about $1000 a year.

A million dollars in 1000 years. Sounds so cool ;)

I've come up with a better idea as the local lottery is about $20M now maybe I'll take my last AdSense check and buy thousands of lottery tickets, could be a quicker solution!

incrediBill - you are about 2 weeks too late. The largest ever lottery jackpot in history was a few weeks ago in the Euro Lottery.

From memory the Jackpot was US$ 260 million if not a bit more. Just three main winners. Wow.

6:40 am on Feb 19, 2006 (gmt 0)



Of course it's possible to make a million from Adsense.

In the last 3 years, I made $2.6 million, of which $1.2 million went to business expenses, taxes, living expenses, etc.

But again, I am a premium publisher, having people on payroll, not a "one man" operation.
